Spurs fans have been discussing some quotes from on-loan Southampton man Kyle Walker-Peters about Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking. 

In an interview with Southampton’s official website, the 22-year-old discussed the Argentinian manager in detail, suggesting that: “I think had he stayed, I’d still be at Tottenham, I think that he showed his faith in me. Mourinho comes in and I get to play one game, but I didn’t really get an opportunity like I thought I would originally.” (via The Spurs Web)

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? - Who did Spurs beat in the opening fixture?

The right-back has made just three Premier League appearances for Spurs this season and made just one appearance under Jose Mourinho, playing 90 minutes in the 3-1 defeat against Bayern Munich in December. It was no surprise, therefore, to see him join Southampton on loan in January, although he has made just one appearance for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side so far.

Is Walker-Peters good enough for Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Reaction from Spurs fans to the quotes from Walker-Peters can be seen in the tweets below.

These Spurs fans clearly don’t agree with the quotes from Walker-Peters and feel that he isn’t good enough to be starting.

What do we think?

In his Spurs career, Walker-Peters has made just 24 appearances for the senior side, so to suggest that Pochettino had faith in him seems strange and it would perhaps not be a surprise to see Mourinho try and sell the £9 million rated man this summer.
